Royal Products has made two changes in its leadership management structure, promoting Tom Sheridan, president and Chris Jakubowsky, executive vice president.

Mr. Sheridan has been with Royal for 28 years. He has previously worked within the company as an applications engineer, design engineer, director of sales and marketing, and vice president of marketing. Mr. Jakubowsky has been with the company for 22 years and has worked as industrial engineer, director of production, director of operations and vice president of operations. Both employees have been heavily involved in all aspects of day-to-day operations for years, the company says.

Former President and current CEO Allan Curran says, “Together they will run the company, while I scale back a bit and start taking some time off. Of course, this business is in my bones and I don’t think I will ever fully retire, so I will continue to remain involved with Royal on the strategic planning side of the business.”
